About

Nick van Tiel is a talented DJ and music producer who splits his time between the sun-drenched beaches of Sydney, Australia, and the raw streets of New York City.

Raised in New Zealand on a diet of soul, reggae and hip-hop, it was inevitable that Nick’s musical taste would be shaped by the land of his birth. A decade spent between Sydney, London and New York has exposed Nick to a vast array of musical ideas which have all contributed to his unique style – fusing elements of hip-hop, reggae, dancehall, house, and UK bass into an infectious melting pot of soul music.

Just as comfortable providing the soundtrack to a sublime night of cocktail indulgence as he is making a dancefloor sweat, Nick’s genre-defying love for all things soulful has earned him residencies and headline appearances at a number of the world’s most illustrious venues, as well as numerous festival appearances, fashion shows and product launches across the globe.

His production work with longtime DJ partner Skygro, as Housing Corp, has earned Nick serious street cred in the house and bass music scene, and the pair’s monthly underground parties have become a staple of New York City nightlife. With strong support from a large number of music blogs and DJ’s, the boys work is getting them some real attention and they have a slew of originals and remixes slated for release in the coming months.

Nick has shared DJ lineups with a list of talent as long as it is diverse, including; Hayden James, Route 94, Le Youth, The Knocks, Claptone, Wave Racer, Nancy Whang, Amtrac, Classixx, Shiba San, Huxley, Nora en Pure, Slumberjack, Bag Raiders, Cassian, Mick Boogie, Anna Lunoe, Tchami, Kant, Vanilla Ace, Lee Foss, Sweater Beats, and Flight Facilities – as well as lending tour support to several international heavyweights such as Grandmaster Flash, Chromeo, Soul II Soul, Coolio, Crazy Penis, Norman Jay and Aloe Blacc.

Nick’s ear for music and innovative approach to DJing has led him to become one of the world’s most in-demand performers. Expect to hear big things from this antipodean export in the very near future.
